The Washington Redskins are counting on Robert Griffin III to bounce back into excellence during his third year.
Griffin digested every bit of the sophomore slump that tends to follow rookies that enjoy breakout inaugural runs.
Whether it was due to injury, poor leadership or some combination of both, RG3 would like to forget the year where it felt like he was RG negative three.
One of his chosen targets Santana Moss recently talked to the Washington Post about the quarterback’s physical progression now that he has placed a lot of distance between himself and the critical injury that marred his sole playoff appearance.
“He looks more comfortable, because he don’t have to worry about that brace,” Moss said. “I think the brace was the big discomfort last year. You know, he’s a young guy with those fiery legs that want to do so much, and that brace probably gave him a little pinch in the behind, because he couldn’t do the things that he was normally accustomed to doing. You can already see, when we’re out there in conditioning and stuff, he’s running around, looking like the old Robert Griffin.”
The “old” Robert Griffin was a threat that was very difficult to contend with.
Factor in the addition of speedster DeSean Jackson at wideout and the continued development of Albert Morris at running back and the Redskins have the coveted trinity of skill players that build championship-caliber offenses.
RG3 is the center of the universe in Washington and if his physical progression is not as advertised, its going to be another long, long season.
